Apply now: Become a Data Values ​​Advocate

Exciting news! Applications are now open for the second cohort of the Data Values Advocates program, an initiative that empowers grassroots and community activists to shape a fairer data future.

The Data Values Advocates program will provide training, micro funding, mentorship and support to six individuals working at the grassroots and community levels who are interested in promoting and implementing the Data Values agenda. The program will provide the advocates with support to co-develop a project plan, and to implement the #DataValues Manifesto in their local contexts. They will also have the opportunity to lead and shape prominent communications, advocacy activities, and events, and to travel to a global conference as part of the Data Values movement.

The program is open to grassroots and community activists eager to learn about the opportunities and harms of data, with no technical experience working directly with data required. Instead, we seek individuals with a background in community engagement, mobilization, or activism and a genuine interest in creating a fairer data future for all. We especially encourage participation from those working with or from communities that face marginalization or are often underrepresented in global processes and policies. 

Before applying, please read this information pack, which includes more details about the program’s benefits, opportunities and expectations, and complete this short online application

Applications close by midnight EST, January 15, 2024.
